With “Shaman King”, Yo Asakura and his guardian spirit Amidaru fight their way through a tournament to become the next king of the shamans. Will the reboot get a second season?
For the first time, “Shaman King” was convincing as a manga by Hiroyuki Takei until an anime adaptation of the same name followed in 2001. Now the story of Yo Asakura has been rebooted on Netflix. Director Jouji Furuta, screenwriter Shoji Yonemura and designer Satohiko Sano teamed up under Studio Bridge for the new release.

On August 9, 2021, the first part of the “Shaman King” reboot started with 13 episodes on Netflix. Anime fans already have reason to cheer: the series is to receive a total of 52 episodes. So we can’t just look forward to season 2, but also to seasons 3 and 4, depending on the length of the season.
When Will “Shaman King” Season 2 Be On Netflix?
While the “Shaman King” reboot only recently celebrated its premiere, the first 13 episodes have been on view in Japan since April 1, and the Japanese audience will soon be able to continue: Season 2 starts there on August 12, 2021.
If the delay between the Japan and Netflix release is maintained, we should see the new episodes of the second season in this country in mid / end of December 2021.
